coupled with good lyrics sung in a pleasing cadence”

“These versions were selected strictly on the instrumental passage,as I usually jump in at the 2:30 minute mark to avoid the vocal,and stop listening after the jam portion,to avoid the vocal”

Seems to be an odd contradiction.

I did not say it was sung well,I was talking about it's appeal as a composition,not how well a questionable vocalist performed it over the span of his career.There are some 70's versions and the majority of the acoustic versions where it is well sung or at least listenable,but for the most part part I don't enjoy listening him struggle trying to sing it.No contradiction whatsoever.
